The 2011 British Country Music Award nominations were announced this morning, and some familiar names have made the cut overseas. Brad Paisley, Lady Antebellum, Toby Keith, the Zac Brown Band and the Secret Sisters have all earned nominations in the International Act of the Year category. It’s the only category that contains international names, but it’s great to see country music is alive and well across the world!
